I've been reading Desire to Inspire by Christine Miller, I won the book on
Corrine's blog giveaway.
I've been stuck in the, "not enough time in my day for art" mode. That kind of thinking leads to there not being enough time. It becomes my truth. So now I say, " I WILL have time today".
Desire to Inspire has a few tips to help one get their creative mojo going.
One of the exercise to motivate your creative ambition in the midst of a busy lifestyle is to "find the superhero in you".
The idea is to find something that will remind you that you are an artist and need to make time for that aspect of your life. Our daily responsibilities have a way of sucking up all of our time.
It is suggested in the book to use something as a trigger of sorts to get you motivated in a creative direction. Some of the suggestions are;
1. Choose a magic word
( none of the ones I picked were appropriate..have a bad attitude at the moment)
On to number two.
2. Create your power move...something that actives your confidence.
( What ???? )
3. Pick a talisman
( I spend way to much time looking for my glasses and car keys.
Don't need to keep track of another thing)
4. Find a theme song
( How to pick one song??...so many to choose from)
I have been struggling for months with finding time to work on art projects.
I'm a mom = housekeeper, cook, taxi driver, homework specialist, accountant, the list goes on.
I also work part time, take care of four family pets
( family pets that only survive because I remember to feed and water them)
and somehow I seem to be the only one who knows what everyone else is doing in the house and keeps them all on track.
Holy cow! I'm Wonder Woman!
So number two it is!
Power move = Wonder Woman stance.
How do you carve out time in your day for creative endeavors?
